The Ambler House 

THIS is a beautiful home presented to Hillsdale College by Judge Ambler of 
Cleveland to be used as a Domestic Science practice house. 

It is situated on Hillsdale Street, a block from the campus. The beauty of the 
building is increased by its spacious grounds. The Ambler House is regarded as 
the social center of many college activities. 

Seniors and Juniors specializing in Household Economics live here one-half year 
to obtain credit in Household Management. Supervised by the science and art in- 
structors, they get actual experience in marketing, keeping accounts of all ex- 
penditures and planning menus for the household. In short, these young women 
acquire the art of home making as well as that of teaching.

THE course in Household Economics not only prepares students in the science 
and art of home making and the profession of teaching, but also opens the way 
to many branches related to these fields: dietitian, institutional manager, cafeteria 
director, social or extension worker, expert buyer for merchants, interior decorator, 
designer, or director of educational work now being taken up by large commercial 

The amount of literary work and the wide range of electives gives a broader 
and more general training than many of the more technical schools. 

Those majoring in this department are required to have 15 hours of Chemistry 
as a minor and 25 hours of Home Economics. The degree of B.A. or B.S. is awarded 
at the completion of four years of work according to the group of studies in which the 
majority of electives have been chosen. The general requirements, fees and explana- 
tions of courses are given in the catalog.

Description of Cooking Laboratory 

THE Cooking Laboratory is in the house adjoining the kitchen, which is in 
charge of the House Cook, and all of the foods prepared in the laboratory are 
served at the meals. 

In the fall extensive work is given in fruit and vegetable canning, thus provid- 
ing supplies which are kept in the fruit cellar for use during the winter. 

Practical experience is gained in planning and managing banquets serving 
from ten to fifty guests. This gives the students an opportunity to buy and prepare 
food in large quantities, as well as to organize such work in a systematic manner.

Description of Sewing Laboratory 

THE domestic art laboratory is on the second floor of the Fine Arts Hall. It 
is also used for work in Applied Art. Many north windows give an even light 
and there is ample locker room for the students' equipment. 

The work in the various courses is correlated as much as possible. For ex- 
ample, the girls may plan dresses in their costume design classes and make them 
in their sewing classes. 

The sections are not so large as to crowd the room or prevent individual help. 

Those specializing in other departments may elect any of the domestic art 
courses and receive full collegiate credit.
